White Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Sugar Cookies - Our Kind of Wonderful

White Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Sugar Cookies

We decided to try something new this year for Christmas neighbor gifts, and K loves peppermint, so when I found this recipe on Cooking Classy it was a no brainer. These were so much easier than I thought they’d be, and everyone said they were awesome, so they’re definitely going down as a holiday must bake/must have.

Ingredients

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp peppermint extract
2 1/2 cups (15 oz) white chocolate chips
2 1/2 Tbsp shortening
1/3 cup finely crushed candy canes

Instructions

1
--Cookies--
2
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cream of tartar for 20 seconds, set aside.
3
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together sugar and butter until combined. Mix in egg then mix in egg yolk, vanilla and peppermint extract. With mixer set on low speed slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combined (dough with will thick, so stop mixer and mix by hand to get flour at bottom if needed).
4
Scoop dough out 1 1/2 Tbsp at a time and shape into balls. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner, spacing cookies 2-inches apart (chill dough balls that aren't currently baking in refrigerator on plates). Bake in preheated oven 10 - 11 minutes (cookies should appear slightly under-baked). Remove from oven and allow to rest several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

--For the Coating--
6
Place chocolate chips and shortening in a medium microwave safe bowl and heat in microwave on 50% power in 20 second intervals, stirring well between intervals until melted and smooth. Dip half of cooled cookies in white chocolate allowing excess to run off (or slide bottom slightly along edge of bowl) then transfer to wax paper and immediately sprinkle with peppermint bits. Allow to set at room temperature or in refrigerator. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
